Sleep, how I long for thee
Feeling like a zombie again today. Don't know how much longer I can go without another day where I just sleep all day. Jayson is 7 months in 2 days and is still not sleeping through the night. I've been trying the no cry gentle sleep method thing but it's not working so I think I may have to try the dreaded cry it out method soon even though it will break my heart to do it.
I know it will pass in time. I've just got to hang in there.
I wonder.. at bed time does Jayson go right to sleep? Does he have a set bed time? Between 9-9:30 every night is when I start winding down with Charlie. We go into my bedroom, lay in bed with very low light and just babble to each other and eat until he falls asleep. Since we FINALLY have somewhat of a routine down, he's not allowed to take naps after 6pm, and grandparents and Godparents are aware of this if they're watching him.
He usually gets up around 2 and 4 also, and again at 5/5:30 but he's been sick a lot on and off and that has meant that he's up a lot more. Plus we're transitioning him from being next to our bed to his own room which also is new to him. Lots of changes.
I am starting to think that a contributing factor is the mattress is too hard for him in the crib because if I lay him down on our bed or in his rock n play he's out like a light and sleeps really good. But he hates the crib even though he will sleep in the crib at my mother in laws house no problem. So I'm going to experiment and see if I can make it more comfortable!
